I installed "krusader" (a norton commander clone) and it installed a bazillion dependencies


I installed an app called krusader, it is a norton commander clone for linux. I have been using NortonCommander and then Total Commander since the 80s in dos day, so wanted a version of that kind of thing. I also liked xTree but Norton was really my thing.
Code:
sudo apt-get install krusader
But it installed a bazillion things. I am not sure why... but it installed so much.

Why would that be, and is it a bad thing?

If I uninstall with...
Code:
sudo apt remove krusader
sudo apt purge krusader
sudo apt autoremove
sudo apt clean
Does that remove it and all the junk it installed?

Also, is there a norton commander type thing that works with the standard bodHi libraries so I can keep it a lite(ish) install. Or dose it not matter that krusader installed pages and pages of stuff?

my guess would be because it is a kde program so there were probably plenty of dependencies that aren't normally installed with bodhi. the answer to whether or not that is a bad thing i think would depend on whether/how much those things affect your system.

that should remove the bulk of the program and libraries. there may be some residual stuff in ~/.config.

I don't use Bodhi but I've used Krusader in the past. I use Double Commander now; maybe try that one.

i have only heard of krusader. i have never used it personally. there is a link on the krusader page to a program called midnight commander. my understanding is that is a terminal/text-based file manager. i don't know if that is what you are looking for.

it might help others point you in the right direction if you can explain which features of krusader you are looking for. i get along with pcmanfm (bodhi's default) just fine because i don't have a need for anything fancy.

There seems to be three versions... GTK QT and QT5?

what is best for Moksha Desktop?

<edit>

Actually, there is a copy of it I can install directly from the BodHi App Center website thing.. so I guess that would be the best one.

I learned to use Midnight Commander and that may have helped me with Double Commander. But the thing is to take the time to go through the configuration options (there are lots of those), and to make use of the help document, which I think is pretty good. I don't know if DC is the best option for you but I hardly ever use anything else for file management these days, besides the command line. I do like Dolphin and pcmanfm, though.

looks like that one installs the gtk version in case you were wondering which one you would be getting

Yeah... double commander looks cool.. but I have to say Midnight Commander really hits me in the nostalgia jewels. It is prety much how I remember norton commander in dos. I have been using that a lot today. I love how I can be in the terminal and just quickly mc into a graphical file manager, and retain the terminal command log and outputs and everything.. so quick.

I was also into DC in the past but now I like Thunar for its speed and functionality. Anyway in case of 2 panel file manager, Double Commander is the cool solution under great development and support. I still use some of its features. For example looking into deb files.
